Eighty Million Dollars In Grant Money Awarded To Replace Rocheport Bridge

Over eighty one million dollars in grant money is being awarded to the Missouri Department of Transportation to replace the Rocheport Bridge.

The grant money will come from an Infrastructure For Rebuilding America fund through the federal Department of Transportation.

In March, inspectors said the bridge was in poor condition and needed to be replaced.

Construction is expected to start sometime in 2021 according to MoDOT.
